Hi folks,

Do you think "Open Discussions" would be a better name for the "Non-Aikido Discussions" (formerly known as the "Chit Chat" forum)?

The reason why I changed the name from "Chit Chat" was due to people saying the name conveyed a bit of a flippant tone. I meant to ill-will with the name change...

IMHO, a rose by any other name. "Chit Chat", "Non-Aikido", or "Open Discussion" is all fine. Some oen will always take take offense. There is no way to please everyone. Though, IMHO, your forum comes pretty close. As always, compliments and appreciation.

Until again,

Well, I personaly dont see what is wrong with Chit-Chat, but I guess any name would do as long as one stays away from names like Shit-Chat or Bulloks :D

Heh -- points taken.

I think I like the ring of "Open Discussions" so I've re-renamed the forum to that...

Oh, NOW you tell us! I spend THREE HOURS looking around for my beloved 'Chit-Chat' forum, and you go and change it's name without telling us AHEAD OF TIME?!?!?! SHAME!

hee hee!

Hmm... Maybe I'll just write a program to randomly choose a new name every day? Every hour?

Let's see... Parse /usr/share/dict/words, pull out two (or three) words at random... Hmm...

I would not do that Jun, random generators have the nasty habbit of coming with the answers you didnt want in the first place.

Would not want to have forums named like:

Complete nonsense, Fart Talk or Bush is Right, would you?? :D :confused: :D

That's true. Since there's a chance a random forum name generator might come up with "Chit Chat" or "Non-Aikido Discussion," I think I'll just keep it "Open Discussions" for now.
